He has a female child in the right age category. >From various resources it appears that several Wightman families were early pioneers in the settlement of the Western Reserve. There is a Western Reserve Historical Society. They may have family records. Hope this helps.

As far as I know there is no Danube, Ohio. You are probably referring to the Whitney's found in Danville, Brown Twp., Knox Co. found on page 205 in Pierce, under Thomas #1331 and his children. I have found the same Danube information listed for them in another source. I concur that the Londonville is really Loudonville in Ashland County, close to Danville and in which one of his sons, John, lived. I was a resident of Ashland, Ashland Co. and know Loudonville well. I have been to the old Whitney farm in Brown Twp. searching for clues to my own ancestry. To no avail I'm sorry to say. I have also met with descendant of Thomas in Danville and it was she who directed me to the farm and gave me information of that family. Ben A.

According to this book, he was born in 1777 in Lincoln, MA. He appears on the census information (via WRG website) as living in Union ME in 1810 and moved to Warren in 1819. He married Lydia Russell and resided near Mt. Pleasant. Died Nov, 6 (according to the book) or 7 (according to headstone) 1851. His children: John (2nd)m. Jane Kiff resided in Centreville, RI James b. Sept 1, 1813; m Belinda S (Orff)Day Feb 22, 1852 resided Northeast Warren Russell, b. Jan. 1816; m. Henrietta L. McKellar of Camden Sept. 26, 1852 and d. Nov 22, 1859 James' child: Lavinia E. b. March 20, 1855 in Warren Russell's children: Lydia J. b. Nov and d. Dec 1853; Alden R. b Feb 14, 1855 Today I photographed the head stone for John Whitney, one I suspect belongs to his wife Lydia (no information, just a marker), his son Russell and Russell's infant daughter. The other members of the family aren't buried in this cemetery or they are unlisted and unmarked. There was a veteran's marker for John Whitney. I also found a headstone for John Willard Whitney and the markers for his parents John F. and Jane B. He died June 22, 1868 at 30 yrs and 1 mo. The Annals of Warren, ME do not mention any of them and I so far haven't located their homes on the 1851 map of the town that came with the book. These people aren't related to me and my interest is that they lived not very far from me. I have pictures of the stones and a copy of an old map from 1851 where Mrs. Russell and John Whitneys' houses were if this is of interest to anyone. I'm curious to know more about them and so far, haven't found much information - I've yet to go to our historical society as they keep archaic hours - if any. I've tried searching through the WGR website and find no mention of these Whitneys other than John in the 1810, 1830, 1840 Census information. The Lincoln, MA vital records that are on the website as well has no listing for John Whitney being born in 1777. Hope the photographs can be of use to someone, just contact me and I'll email them on.

You might try searching either the Rootsweb Database or Family Search at the Mormon Church, and just look for any Mary Wightman. I got 159 hits on GenCircles, but none of them the right one for your query. Happy Hunting! Allan E.
